Cup and Saucer Vine / Cobaea Alba

by Maureen Sullivan on April 17, 2014

Cup-Saucer-Vine-AlbaFull sun. To 20 feet.  A vigorous climber, scrambling to twenty feet and more.  Cup and saucer vine Alba displays creamy off white 2 to 3 inch blossoms held aloft above equally beautiful foliage.  Very delicate tendrils scramble over surfaces grabbing on and covering walls, screens, fences and trellises.  The vines do need a little help if the surface lacks adequate texture.  Flowering begins after the vines have become well established.  They are worth the wait. Requires soil with good drainage.
